i.e no age etc
Is this why everyone thinks it's good to look "scuzzy" and like a mexican drug dealer these days?
No Age are in a scene? More info on the scene pls.
the tiny little town of LOS ANGELES
The Mae shi too!
Also: LA Guns and Motley Crue.
because they have a track called PWNED. That's reason enough to disregard them in my book.
kat von dee that freaked me out.
Is it just those two bands? I need further scene info.
all this I garnered from one DiS No Age review. Wow. HEALTH are good, Crimewave is free on their myspace too.
apparently it's a scene. suddenly eating fried chicken, being sweaty, wearing shades and playing scuzzy rock music is really cool. If it's not a scene it will be, and I'm claiming it as my own so i can deride it in a few months time.
aren't No Age hardcore vegans?
that's just the impression i get of the whole "scene", not neccesarily no age.
Best. Episode. Ever.
i was going to post a thread about it, i was actually bouncing around my bed in tearss watching that!
I STARTED IT
PLEASE LET ME BE COOL FOR ONCE
*buys vests, sweats on them, eats fried chicken, goes on about it*
very well, in fact.
i think it is a scene because nme said so to sell magazines and make fairly average indie bands seem more important to sell more magazines.
which means its packed constantly. Shame its in Downtown LA.
“No - all of us started at the Smell and it’s still a place that we all play pretty regularly. It’s such an important place to all of us and it’s really inspiring to see it get recognised for what it’s brought to the community. I seriously doubt that anyone would have resistance to being associated with the Smell; in fact I’d say we’re personally proud of it and are glad that people make those associations.”
in LA. Its the bees knees apparently. I have yet to venture.
you'll all see when huffing paint fumes becomes the new MDMA.
the PNW scene is much more interesting music wise.
I haven't heard of this...
Pacific North West,
Band Of Horses
Pretty much anything on Sub Pop
I haven't checked out that lot yet well apart from Sub Pop.
imaculate and not scuzzy at all really...... I dont get out much mind.
I doubt the LA scene from The Smell are having much of an impact on most peoples lives to be honest.
No Age, HEALTH, The Mae-Shi, Abe Vigoda, Mika Miko, BARR... there are more but I cant think of them right now they are wicked.
I started a thread on ace bands coming out of Denver yesterday, fom a place called Rhinoceropolis but it got well ignored hehehe. I wrote about it all on my blog though if anyone is arsed.....
im just pre-empting the inevitable.
No Age rule!
are pretty dull. Mika Miko are really, really great. I used to like The Mae Shi but am no longer that bothered about them. There are other bands from Los Angeles who play at The Smell too. Thats about the extent of my views/opinions on The Smell's scene. Thanks for listening.
for an 11am show to watch No Age, Mika Miko and Abe Vigoda. There's no way it's not going to be the best thing ever.
If i wasn't planning on being hungover i might have gone....
